We used the rest of our ingredients from the Irish stew to make Boeuf Bourguignon in our slow cooker. I was out that morning, and Noah stayed home sick again, so he was in charge of assembling the ingredients. Not to point any fingers, but someone mistook our corn starch for flour, so our stew had a lot of… gooey clumps on the bottom. I also don’t think the recipe was quite right – the wine didn’t quite infuse with the rest of the flavors and it tasted like beef stew with some wine dumped in. I am not a fan of this recipe. But, then again, we didn’t quite follow the recipe entirely. Beef and Guinness stew ingredients differ slightly from Boeuf Bourguignon, so that may have been the problem.
This was the pretty picture of the weird-tasting stew:
